Defining a specific area to monitor the number of people can be critical for stores in situations where specific regulations must be met. With Area Density Monitoring, selected areas can be configured for this purpose. Whenever an area gets overcrowded, which can lead to potentially dangerous situations, a notification is immediately sent to a central management platform for quick and easy follow-up.
Data that reveal which areas are most visited could be a great help for operational insights. In the shelf area, heat-mapping technology marks the popularity of each shelf areas. Combined with other information, problems with commodities becomes apparent.

Combined with sales data, the heat map data is a great tool for management team to reveal insights on shopping patterns.
Waiting times can have a devastating effect on the in-store customer experience. Queue detection cameras are designed to monitor queues in real-time and send notifications when there are too many people waiting in line. Along with response times, managers can also check on queue data to evaluate staff performance and track efficiency improvements.

You will be generating reports, analyzing the results, and then revising the final product with helpful tools and savvy insights. Agonizing over your store’s audit history will become history.
The audit manager will define the area to be audited, identifying each section and what elements need to be present. Next, a checklist for each area will be established. Items to check would include exits being blocked, goods located in hazardous areas, the cleanliness of shopping areas, etc. Finally, the assignment of an audit alerts the system to begin the process using pictures or video according to the needs in each area. Images and footage can be sent to the relevant auditor by way of a mobile app or another system client.
Using Hikvision’s Smart Retail Solution, the auditing process might look something like this: the primary personnel in charge of the security audit would schedule and outline the steps in the process. Once initiated and completed, the audit results would be generated. If the process is deemed satisfactory, a report is produced and any necessary follow-up would be ready for the relevant personnel. If the process shows that requirements are not fulfilled or incomplete, those results, too, would be generated. A “problem list” would be sent to the responsible party so that a new checklist would be available.
The process of rectifying the results would be as simple as going down the list and make sure everything was set in order.
